    If an assignment is turned in late it will be 10 pts off of the final grade for each school day it is late.

     

    Notebooks:

    Students are required to keep a notebook containing all class work that is divided into sections. The notebook is very important and will figure significantly in each student’s grade for each 9 week period and will also represent his or her work in this class.

    Classroom Behavior:

    Just like all classes at Sharpstown International School, positive behavior and positive attitudes are required for this class. Your actions and attitude are a matter of choice.  ALL students enrolled in 7thgrade Language Arts are expected to follow ALL school policies and procedures.  Additionally, an atmosphere of respect is what is expected in my classroom at all times.
